Street Store comes to pop up in Melbourne


The world’s popular community-support event arrives this Saturday

Just a month ago I posted an article here on a charitable pop up campaign started earlier in 2014 and now spreading across the globe. The concept was only launched in January (Cape Town, South Africa) – but by September The Street Store had already popped up in around 900 locations !

Which led me to comment and ask “…the concept hasn’t arrived in Australia yet (or has it ?) Who knows of any Street Stores popping up in our neighbourhoods ?

I’m very pleased to provide an update on that – and share details of the first Street Store for Australia – in Melbourne, this coming weekend ! Saturday’s event will feature the pop up Street Store, food vouchers and haircuts for the homeless customers… Members of the public are encouraged to support the cause by donating clothing and buying a “Mr. Burger” burger for a person in need at the event.

Watch the Melbourne Street Store promo on You Tube here !

Organisers of the Melbourne event – Free Is Better™, GIDI CREATIVE and Homeless of Melbourne – have also launched a Pozible campaign to raise extra funds… ‘Though the rewards are not what you’d usually expect from a crowdfunded initiative… donations ($5 to $100) will be acknowledged when they “shout your name out load and proud so everyone can hear just how incredible you are…”

What –   The Street Store

Where – Federation Square, Melbourne

When –  Saturday 20th December, 12pm to 3pm
